Overview

Mexico's Sierra Tarahumara: A Photohistory of the People of the Edge

The Tarahumara, "people of the edge," live on the boundaries of civilization, in the mountains and canyonlands of Mexico’s Sierra Tarahumara. There, in southwestern Chihuahua, terrain terminates at the edge of canyons; their mountains border the sky. In these pages, words by W. Dirk Raat and images by George R. Janecek, is testimony to the endurance of the Tarahumara people.

Today, roughly fifty thousand Tarahumaras continue living in ways similar to those of their ancestors, retaining many customs from their pre-Columbian past.
